The SchomEmunity Wiki:Registering & Logging in
There are two main parts to the schome website:
- The Wiki (which you are currently looking at) - which provides information relevant to the schome community - it is a wiki, which means that anyone who registers for it can edit/add content.
- The schome community forum - which provides a space where we can discuss any aspect of schome (or education more generally).
You can access the schome community forum via the 'Forum' link in the navigation panel which appears on the left of most pages in the Wiki.
The registration process for both are connected - you register with the forum and use that name and password to access the wiki as well. You can register for the forum m] and wiki by clicking here. You will be taken to a page where you are asked to fill in a few details. Once you've done that the system will send you an email with details of how to activate your account in the schome community forum.
Your username will be used to identify you within both the forum and wiki - so where possible it makes sense for your username to be your own name or nickname.
When you register you are given the option of providing your email address - whilst this is not compulsory the convention within the Wiki is that adults do provide their email address.
Once you have registered one of the first things you should do is to edit your userpage. You can access your userpage by clicking on your username - which will be the first item in the menu that runs along the top of the Wiki panel (just below your browser's toolbars).
Please include some info about yourself - but remember that this website is open to anyone on the Internet - whilst adults might want to include their email address, young people should NOT provide any personal details anywhere in the Wiki.
If you have any concerns about the information anyone has provided within the Wiki then please discuss them with Peter Twining (P.Twining@open.ac.uk) .
